Twitter has lost one of the funniest accounts in a long time due to possible pressure from the thin-skinned officials in Russia.

The social media platform suspended five accounts that parodied Russian officials, including the popular @DarthPutinKGB, who regularly mocked Russian President Vladimir Putin. They have reinstated a few, but the Putin...

Man Enough

If you’ve been watching Twitter for the last few days, you may have seen an ad floating around which features a bearded hipster asking if you’re man enough to vote for Hillary.

Unfortunately, the ad is fake. The Hill reports:

Thanks in large part to the Emory University students who pathetically panicked after seeing pro-Trump messages written in chalk on campus sidewalks, pro-Trump messages are now appearing on other college campuses.

The whole thing is going viral on Twitter under the hashtag #TheChalkening.

Amanda Carpenter, former aide to Jim DeMint and Ted Cruz, was one of five women whose barely pixelated images were published by the National Enquirer as allegedly having affairs with Ted Cruz.

Since then, Carpenter has been subjected to a truly insane, vicious Twitter smear campaign attacking her and her family. People...

Heads Locked with Bicycle Locks

Amid the last few days’ legitimate furor over Twitter apparently censoring conservative opinions, some conservatives have vowed to quit the medium in protest.  That is a mistake.

Legal Insurrection’s previous coverage of Twitter’s banning author Robert Stacy McCain and de-authenticating Milo Yiannopoulos – both noted critics of extreme feminism – is here...

The impetus Saturday was the suspension of Robert Stacy McCain’s account (@rsmccain).  McCain blogs at TheOtherMcCain.com and last February published a book, Sex Trouble: Essays on Radical Feminism and the War Against...

Twitter, an invaluable news aggregator when properly run and used, has seemingly taken aim at conservatives and those advocating conservative causes.

In early January, Twitter stripped Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos (@Nero on Twitter) of his “verification,” saying he violated the anti-harassment Terms of Service.

The renewed attention on media bias since the Washington Post cartoon about Ted Cruz’s children reminded me of Kyle Smith’s December 14, 2015, review of Bridge of Lies in Commentary.

Twitter has effectively shut down a popular and controversial Twitter-scraping service that allowed activists and journalists alike to keep tabs on their favorite (or not so) politicians’ and diplomats’ online activities.

Politwoops and Diplotwoops existed as a way to archive deleted tweets from politicians and diplomats. Twitter cut off their API...
